I think that your rig is pretty similar to the one that they showed off the gameplay videos with. That had an i7 920 + GTX 580.

With that said OP, 120Hz is definitely worth it if you´re aiming for above 60fps minimum, just like De-Zant pointed out.
Nothing "retarded" at all about it. 60 FPS minimum on a 60 FPS maximum monitor provides what every gamer strives for: silky smooth gaming.

You'd have to be awfully arrogant or .. something to think otherwise.

We're not looking for a 120 maximum. We're looking for 60 minimum. Which my machine handles just fine, thank you. I'd rather have a perfectly steady 60 than be up and down between 50 and 90 any day.

But the thing is, it's not silky smooth. it's extremely hypocritical to say that 60FPS is absolutely required, yet have no interest in 120hz.

I thought you said you were leaving?

Anyways, I am just looking to learn at this point. I will not spend $500 on a monitor just for some Hz when 60Hz looks just fine for me. Do you have any sources? I was told a long time ago that anything over 60 was a waste.

human eyes can see up to 120hz that's why 3dtv works. If you just want to enjoy the game, you won't even need more than 60fps continuous. There's some people who just want absolute max and for e-peen, it's not worth it to even start a conversation with those people.

That´s where you´re completely wrong. 60 fps+ on a 60Hz display will be plagued by screen tearing, which in my opinion is HORRIBLE for fps gaming.

You do realise that 60 fps minimum means an average fps of at least 80-90 fps and a maximum fps of 100+ frames per second?

60Hz displays CANNOT show more than 60 full frames per second, period. Instead, when running above 60 fps, 60Hz displays tend to skip frames, which results in tearing. I suggest you get your facts straight.

This is not the same as 60 frames per second minimum. Steady 60 fps can only be achieved by enabling vertical sync. vSync limits the amount of frames per second to your monitors refresh rate, thereby eliminating screen tearing.

Human eyes can see up to a lot more than 120 frames per second. It requires training, though. Above 60 fps isn´t just for "e-peen", it actually makes the whole difference in the world when playing fps games, especially when playing competetively.

Your eyes can notice a difference between 30 and 60 fps because they see at 30. (This is taking into account that you see at 30, which I hear is not true in this thread).

At 60fps you can have the worst "lining up" of the monitor frames and when your eyes take a "snapshot" to send to your brain and you will miss half of all frames, making it silky smooth anyways because that would be 30fps, the same as your eye. At 30 if you miss one for one, then you see it like you would a perfectly lined up 15fps and you could then see the stuttering.

This is what I was told for a while was true and it makes perfect sense. Unless of course the fact that you see at 30fps is untrue.

Yes, it is silky smooth. No, it isn't hypocritical. (not sure you understand what "hypocritical" even means.) We're looking for 60hz minimum, and I've been achieving that for some time. It's incredibly smooth. No way would I trade my 60hz IPS for a garbage 120hz TN.

I *will* be getting to try my friend's 120hz this weekend, maybe I'll change my mind.

I suggest you learn to be less condescending, you'll make more friends that way.

However. No, no tearing. I'm getting 60 hz min, average, and maximum. It's called "V-Sync." No one's asking for 80-90 averages, and no one said I was displaying more than 60 fps. No need to "get my facts straight" but you do need to brush up on reading comprehension.

Edit: I see you ninja edited out the last part. Or not. It seemed as if it were directed at me. If it wasn't, I apologize somewhat for the harsh tone.

Do you think your eyes just simply take a screenshot of the world every 1/30th of a second? You really think that? How would that even work on an organic system like your eye? It would not. Your eyes do not see at 30FPS. They see movements and changes.

Theoretically, the maximum limit of the eye itself should be around 2000FPS depending on the person, since that's the speed the light sensing cells can react in the eye, but of course the brain does a lot of filtering to the information, and thus makes the limit a lot lower in most scenarios. This filtering also results in you not noticing some things unless you are specifically told to pay attention to them. Your brain is the limit. This is why you have it depends on what you see that makes the limit. But there is no limit in a sense, just a curve. At some point on the curve, the smoothness increase is just not noticeable enough to make it reasonable to continue.


EDIT: @ pursuinginsanity

You don't have to give up good colors for high hz. It's called a CRT, like mine or the widescreen version GDM-FW900. These things can even beat the colors on your IPS, and are able to achieve higher Hz.
